Welcome to Living in a Bookworld, which basically is a blog full of what else but books. Here, you can find and read reviews about books from the young adult, fiction and not, and sometimes the adult section. Also, every month is going to be dedicated to an author or two.

It can happen when you least expect it, where you least expect it, with whom you least expect it.
Love is kind.
But love may not grow out of kindness. It can happen with the person who hates you mostbecause love knows no bounds.And it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love doesn’t hold a grudge.
Love forgets. But when the healing of your heart
breaks the hearts of the ones you love …

he sprang from the floor and landed on my lap.
The cat, who had
once been my only companion, continued his journey down the couch until he got
to my feet. In a traitorous move, he nipped at my ankle, causing me to gasp and
yank my legs back away from Adam. Rubber Cat gave me a victorious cat grin
before beginning his nesting ritual on Adam’s lap. He turned in circles, first
to the right, then to the left, and finally settled into my former spot. I
stared at both of them, my mouth agape.

“Of course, I
do,” he said. “I popped your sleepover cherry.”
I tried to look
disgusted, but a smile snuck out anyway. “Uhhhh, yeah,” I said, shaking my
head. “I caught you feeding Rubber Cat in the middle of the night, and you told
me that you’d never have a pet.”
“I still don’t

“Maybe. He gets cold on your side.”
“He gets cold?
Really? He has fur. You know what I think? I think you like cuddling with him.”
“Fine. You win.
He’s one sweet pussy, and it turns out that I have a soft spot for your sweet

what you’re talking about because I’m talking about Rubber Cat. You’re the one
who’s filthy.” He jabbed me in the side with a finger and started to tickle me.
